So sorry I haven't been posting. Greg and I went to Mexico for our 5th Wedding Anniversary the 17th-21st. It was WONDERFUL!!!! However on our connecting flight home, we were asked to check our larger carry-on at the plane. It had been a long day and we weren't thinking it would be a problem. I opened it up the next morning to find the back of my laptop had a small dent. No biggie I thought...but man was I wrong. That small dent on the back was a large shatter point on my screen. The screen is completely BUSTED. Continental will pay to get it repaired but from my understanding it will be costly and it may just be cheaper from them to reimburse us for a new computer. Not one part of this is a quick process, so I have very limited access to a computer right now. I can use Greg's work laptop in the evening when he doesn't have Grad school work or regular work to do. So I'm going on a blog hiatus until my computer woes are settled. I hope that will be a short time from now, but I can't be sure. Hope to see you soon!

Pitt Game

Yesterday was the Pitt season opener. We got season tickets along with some family and friends after two years of not having any. It's very nice to know where you're sitting every game and to get to know the people around you. We really liked our last "neighbors" but we moved sections. When Greg got the tickets he specifically asked for undercover and on an end due to the kiddos and the lady swore seveeral times that both requests were meant. However neither was...we are in the middle of a row (having to disturb people everytime they get too bored or need a potty break) and completely exposed to the elements. Now in the cooler months I'm sure we will be VERY thankful for the sun. But on an 80+ degree day in full sun with two kiddos that begin to wilt after so long, well it sucked! I didn't get to enjoy the game at all and neither did the kids. Oh well there is always next time. The awesome view from our new seats. Although I had a harder time following the game since I was always looking at their backs.

Two happy kiddos ready for the game to start

Hail to Pitt

Two HOT, sweaty, tired kiddos....we weren't even in the 2nd quarter yet

Trying to hide from the sun...when that didn't work Mommy took them down under for a walk and to play in the shade.
Oh and Pitt won the game! So did my other favs ND and OSU!

FFF: Friends

Most days these two hover between trying to take each other out and loving each other fiercely and I suppose that what being close-aged siblings is all about. Then there are the days like at the park, where they are the best of friends. They had a great time playing with the rocks even if I did have to put them in the bathtub asap upon arriving at my parent's house.

The Good Zoo

Last week on Thursday I took the kids down to Olgebay's Good Zoo. It's small but they love it and we always have fun. Here's some pictures of the kids enjoying their day. Laughing at the bear

Hanging with the Lorikeets

Neither one of them wanted to get their picture together

Giving the goat some lovin'

Alittle dazed and confused it seems

Let's go turtle!

Look Mommy, a MONKEY!
